's number two democrat says congressional hearings on gun control are on the way. senator dianne feinstein telling to get an assault weapon ban bill on the floor next month. senator chuck schumer of new york since in a political opportunity, passing gun-control insulation. >> i think we could be added to pinpoint for two reasons. to pinpoint where we might actually get something done. first, this was not a single incident. second, of course, it involves children. lou: hardly anyone is using to talk about mental illness, the disaffection of the mentally disturbed, the importance of a strong family and how to better protect our schools. we'll be taking on those issues tonight, talking with former homeland security director and virginia tech review panel member governor tom ridge. also, a closer look at what congress is having some much trouble getting answers from america's top diplomat on the benghazi terrorist attack.. author jean marie last this on her new book, hidden america, which celebrates the people that are too often ignored but do the jobs that make our lives in this country work.
. >> the gun component was brought up and his suggestion was to arm the schools and senator dianne feinstein quick to criticize and they had a news conference to respond to the nra and i read from the police report from 1999 and she was noting that at columbine there were two armed guards that could not stop the killers. let's listen to that, and then, mark, i want to get your response to that. >> there were two armed law enforcement officers who twice engaged the shooters at columbine. that didn't prevent 15 from being killed and 23 wounded. >> mark, you know, the nra, we all know here in this conversation. it's been so powerful for so many years, in another day and age, lawmakers and the public might have listened to what he said yesterday, but this is now. what is different here in terms of his call for arming schools? will even be listened to? >> richard, normally the pr 101 is a group that seems to be under siege and of course, the nra was attracting a lot of negative attention and you typically make a concession or two, even if it's a fig leaf, just to be able to strike the right tone
't worked. dianne feinstein had her ban and columbine occurred. >> a moment ago you were talking about guns in school, and you said something that made me think that that's something you would agree w.where do you stand on that? >> i don't agree with it. i think the republicans talk about it now. they are going to use that as a way to get around the issue, and the issue is high capacity magazines, and -- and assault weapons. i think david gregory did a magnificent job with the vice president of the nra this morning, and when he says -- he said that he doesn't think the magazine issue has anything to do with it, well, it does. lanza got the guns that his mother had in the house, and he would have taken whatever guns she, and if he had a gun without a high capacity magazine that couldn't shoot more than ten shots, that's all the shots he would have gotten off. he didn't go to the stove and pick his arsenal. he took what his mother gave him. if you had less of those weapons around you'd have more children alive. no matter what mr. lapierre said some of those children died because of the magazi
was an effective method of obtaining information. senator's john mccain, dianne feinstein and carl levin are asking the head of sony pictures to correct the record. we believe you have an obligation to state the role of torture in the hunt for osama bin laden is not based on the facts, but rather part of the film's fictional narrative. let's turn to the director of the aclu national security project. thank you so much for coming on the show. >> thank you for having me. >> the opening scene depicts the torture of a detainee. later the detainee supplies a piece of information during a meal with his interrogators. do you think the film misleads people on the hunt for bin laden, does it not provide sufficient context? >> i think the film certainly starts out with the claim that it's based on fact and it leaves the strong but entirely false impression that torture led to bin laden. and we know that that is false from the people who have reviewed the cia's records. senator's feinstein, levin and mccain are amongst the senate intelligence community personnel who reviewed millions of pages of cia documents
had that for ten years when dianne feinstein passed that ban in '94. it was on the books. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i know this town wants to argue about gun control. i don't think it's what will work. >> adam lanza may not have been able to shoot as many people if he didn't have such ammunition? >> i don't buy that argument. >> it's not possible? >> so many different ways he could have done it. endless amount of ways a monster can do it. >> joining me now is one mom who is taking on the nra, shannon watts, founder of one million moms for gun control. a big welcome to you. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> i know you've studied this issue in depth. so i knew you were listening there to wayne lapierre. what's your reaction to what he just said? >> well, i think a commonsense question is why are we asking someone who profits from the proliferation of guns and ammunition to give us advice on how we can be better protected from guns? it's just not common sense. it's a little bit like the fox guarding the henhouse. as mom, my job i
by senator dianne feinstein that is about the cia detention and torture program. and that report needs to be made public. because that cop collusively refutes any suggestion that torture was effective. but the key thing about this also in going back to what glenn said is the vacuum of information created by the obama administration. i think we should talk about that. >> jim clemente, i want to get your thoughts on accountability right after we take this break. .

is down 90. senator dianne feinstein introduces her proposed assault weapons ban. the gun control debate will be a huge issue in the new year but for gun stores it means sales are spiking even more so than after the elections. dozens of assault rifles are flying off the shelves by the hour. we will talk to a gun store owner with an extraordinary rise in sales at 10:47. today vladimir putin banned americans from adopting russian children. he doesn't like america's criticism of russia's human rights record. here is my take. this is cruel. thousands of young lives will be spending crude orphanages, thousands of american parents will lose the child they hoped to law as their own. this is a disgrace. america is a very generous country. you are not told this often enough but it is true and it is particularly evident in the adoption process. i don't have the exact number but it is close to a million foreign-born for children adopted into american homes. think of that. all those youngsters who now fraud, think of the generosity of the adopting parents who opened homes and hearts, another race or
that got voted down. dianne feinstein, the democrat who chairs the senate intelligence committee, warned that shedding more light on who's being surveiled would destroy the wiretapping program which she says has worked well. >> four years, 100 arrest it prevent something from happening in -- arrests to prevent something from happening in the united states, some of which comes from this program. so i think it's a vital program. >> reporter: conservative analyst cliff may says a wide dragnet is worth the cost. >> let's suppose you were a pakistani immigrant here. you don't have your green card yet. you call your uncle in lahor, yes, you could get caught up. maybe your uncle is just a tailor. if he's a member of the taliban, maybe it's true that somebody think we need to ask questions of this person. >> reporter: if you're talking to the uncle in lahor and you're innocent, you're still caught up -- >> you're not caught up in the sense that you're going to jail. you're not caught up in the sense that anything bad is going to happen to you. >> that was brian todd reporting. >>> they're the li
're seeing dianne feinstein there on the senate floor. it is vacant on the house side. so in truth how much is really going to get done? >> well, gregg, a lot of this negotiations are really taking place between the leadership levels right now. we don't really have to worry about what is happening on the house floor. it's about what is going on at the white house. now, the president today is going to meet with congressional leaders from both parties, both chambers. they will sit down. they will talk about a potential deal. the president might offer something that maybe the republicans could go for. it wouldn't be a sweeping deal. gregg: like what? >> might be something smaller. well, it would be something that could potentially avoid the major tax hikes coming in january. that is the most politically treacherous for these members. they need to find a way to stop taxes going up for everybody. if there is a deal it will probably focus on the range of taxes that are coming. gregg: susan, the house passed a bill that extends all the tax cuts. the senate passed a bill that extends it for everybo
and people have different views whether this is right or not. >> we have a bunch of senators, dianne feinstein, carl levin, john mccain, all of whom sent a letter to sony pictures calling the film grossly inaccurate and misleading. "the new york times" is now reporting that cia act director michael morrell sent out an agency-wide letter criticizing it. >> it is no question that the -- political drama around this movie is added to the buzz and made it as interesting as the film itself. i guess in the -- in the -- lit help drive interest into this thing but there's also a negative which is the fact that there's been so many of these political complaints that it could hurt the film at oscar time. lot of people will be voting for best picture, you know, may vekd thoughts because they -- they have this sense from, you know, authoritative sources that there is misleading and -- harmful position. >> can i ask you quickly of focus on this lone wolf character maya who is credited with the tracking down of bin laden. was this the case in reality? >> this is a very accurate portrayal. the woman
and merry christmas. >> dave:. and let's start with dianne feinstein and the letter, they're saying enhanced interrogation techniques did not lead to the capture of usama bin laden? do they stretch the truth. i haven't seen the film and let's face it it's not a documentary, it's a movie. unfortunately, with all due respect to the senators, i think they're probably a too little too late that the film is about to be released, they're not going to change anything, they probably should have been more when the makers given high level access and the administration working closely with them. a too little too late. >> dave: you brought up a good point. the obama administration worked closely with producers, so if there were inaccuracies taken by the hollywood studios and katherine bigelow and company, isn't it based on actual conversations with government officials? >> well, that's what -- the perception would be, because they were working very closely with them and what's interesting, you bring up a good point, where is the administration? i mean, they obviously vigorously came out against that an
